Congressman Price Votes to Impeach President Trump
WASHINGTON, DC (January 13, 2020) – Today, Congressman David Price (NC-04) released a statement after the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump for his incitement of insurrection that led to the attack at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021:
“The president has engaged in conduct that is criminal, impeachable, and profoundly threatening to our democracy,” said Congressman David Price.
“He has sought to overturn an election to keep himself in office and to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. He has done this by perpetrating a big lie, despite counts and recounts and dozens of judicial rulings, and has pressed state officials and members of this body to reject and reverse popular and electoral vote outcomes. He then invited and activated a violent mob of right-wing extremists, domestic terrorists, and white nationalists to invade the Capitol and achieve his desired result by insurrection.
“If that is not impeachable conduct, I don’t know what is.
“The President must be removed from office immediately and must never be allowed to seek office again, and a marker must be laid down for all time as to what the Constitution and our democracy require.”
